Dempsey: I don't want to be 'complicit' in Iran strike

Good for you General. I believe there are millions more who feel the same way. A strike on Iran's facilities will not stop but only delay the program, let alone cause or create further unrest throughout the region and possibly the world, not to mention billions of more American taxpayer dollars. Hopefully the war hawks will heed your advice and realize this before they engage in futile war.


Speaking to journalists in London, Dempsey said an attack would "clearly delay but probably not destroy Iran's nuclear program," but added that the "international coalition" pressuring Iran "could be undone if it was attacked prematurely".

"I don't want to be complicit if they [Israel] choose to do it," he added.

Dempsey's comments come as the White House said that Iran had a limited window of time to stop its atomic work and diplomatic terms offered by the Western world will not remain open "indefinitely."

he advises lets get rid of Israel at a!!

Now I would like to give a benevolent piece of advice to American politicians who always stood up to defend and support the Zionist regime. So far, this regime has created countless problems for you. It has presented a hateful image of you to the regional peoples, and it has made you look like an accomplice in the crimes of the usurping Zionists. The material and moral costs borne by the American government and people on account of this are staggering, and if this continues, the costs might become even heavier in the future. Think about the Islamic Republic's proposal of a referendum and with a courageous decision, rescue yourselves from the current impossible situation. Undoubtedly, the people of the region and all free-thinkers across the world will welcome this measure.

Then he should stop saying "all options are on the table".
